The East Montgomery County Improvement District Board of Directors, Power Supplements' representatives and the community joined in the celebration on Friday, Sept. 27 and tried some of the products.
"This is a great opportunity not only for East Montgomery County but for Power Supplements," said Guillermo Amtmann, CEO of Power Supplements. "This is a milestone for Power Supplements. We are excited to break ground on our new facility and we hope to continue growing in New Caney. With this facility, we are expanding our production line, will have a building for warehousing purposes and for the first time, we are co-packing our products."
Power Supplements' Plant Manager Jorge Ulloa echoed Amtmann's sentiments, adding, "This project has grown since we first started. When we began to put this project together, we only had one building and now, we have two and will most likely need to expand in the future."
"Working with Power Supplements has been a great experience," said Frank McCrady, EMCID President/CEO. "The company originally approached us about building a 20,000 square-foot building for production and then came back a few months later with even bigger plans for their New Caney facility. We're excited about the new job opportunities this will create in the beverage processing industry for our residents."
Power Supplements creates a variety of products made with all-natural ingredients such as the Patria Energy Drink that also comes in a sugar-free variety; Reboot Power, a natural hangover cure; and health supplements that aid with sleep, immunity and digestive health, stress relief, extended mental stamina and motivation, and a quick energy shot.
The new Power Supplements factory will be located at 1893 Phillip Way in New Caney and will consist of two buildings, including a two-story building that allows for office space for the Power Supplements staff.
"This is a great location and a great opportunity," said Ulloa. "We would not have found this property and none of this would have been possible without EMCID and Frank's assistance. They have been with us since day one, checking on us and making sure we have everything we need to be successful."
